My Question or Issue

When I start Spotify, a black window appears, then the application immediately crashes with this message in stderr:

[0805/134836.559082:ERROR:buffer_manager.cc(488)] [.DisplayCompositor]GL ERROR :GL_INVALID_OPERATION : glBufferData: <- error from previous GL command

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

 

Output from spotify --version
Spotify version 1.1.10.546.ge08ef575, Copyright (c) 2019, Spotify Ltd

Output from journalctl -f:

It looks as if with the most recent update to Pop! OS and the system76 driver, Spotify has suddenly started working. Looks like this wasn't a Spotify issue per se?

Update: I managed to get to the login screen the first time I started spotify, and checked "remember me". If I delete ~/.config/spotify, that is still reproducible, but right after login, the Title bar changes to "Spotify Premium", then the application crashes like before.

I kave kubuntu 19.04, same Spotify client version, the same version of libcurl-gnutls.so.4.5.0 and I experience the same crash on startup, showing as segfault in the journal log, etc. Has by any chance your version of libcurl been upgraded during your last Pop! OS update?

The issue is resolved here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Linux/Ubuntu-19-04-deb-package-segfault/m-p/4764926/highlig...

 

Spotify 1:1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19 crashes with libcurl-gnutls.so.4.5.0. You either downgrade spotify, use snap package or temporarily (and only for spotify) use updated libcurl3-gnutls and libgnutls, as described by chris208
